In Lyn's default Normal Mode, the event triggers his auto-death.

Ih Lyn Hard mode, Batta will most likely be lethal if you don't use a vulnerary and thus the safest strategy is to use a vulnerary next to him until he is at low enough HP to attack him on Player Phase.

Trivia Edit

  • Batta has become a popular joke within the Fire Emblem community for proclaiming himself to have the strength of a beast and yet being very easy to kill often being adapted to other characters in fan-made hacks who are just as pathetically weak.
  • Batta means Locust in Japanese
